A colourful and lively street scene!
Motorbikes are apparently the way to get around in Kampala.
Remarkable red colour of the earthen street.
The picture also shows the big difference between the houses in this street and the higher (newer) blocks at the upper left.
Best regards, Paul

great to see you posting some new photos!
and what a shot here, we don't get to see many scenes from Uganda! Especially here in Canada.
this is one of those shots where we can easily learn so much just from scanning all areas.
and thats exactly what i'm doing, looking at everything very closely.
great shot for TE!

Great to see you posting again. This street scene is lovely with the vibrancy of everyday Africa against the more modern buildings in the distance. The detail in the picture is really interesting with so much going on. A super shot.
Kind Regards, Ann

I am very glad you to see back, this is almost not to believe we as western people that people have to live in these street.
You create an excellent daily life picture, also perfect depth and perspective.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Hello Boa ,
What an interesting scene ! Difficult to think that this is the capital ! But we can see more modern buildings in the BG . Africa seems to be full of life , colors ... but poverty , too .
Thanks for the share .
dkmurphys (50730) 2013-08-30 6:41
Interesting exotic scene. What can I say, a totally different world apart ours. Well taken, fine atmosphere.
Have a good weekend.

Kul överraskning att se dig tillbaka. Detta är ju en helt fantastisk gatubild och ett väldigt bra foto. En typisk afrikanska bakgata där det händer något i varje hörn. Kampala har ju ganska gott rykte, så förmodligen är det här en trivsam gata att spankulera på, men jag skulle akta mig noga för att gå ensam på en liknande gata i t ex Kinshasa eller Abidjan.
Jag tar gärna en fika vid tillfälle, men jag ska ha lite semester snart och dessförinnan är det ganska mycket annat att stå i, men jag kan ju mejla dig framåt oktober.
saxo042 (37596) 2013-08-30 8:31
Hej Boa och välkommen tillbaka
En otroligt massa detaljer i den här bilden, det är många saker man kan fördjupa sig i här. Man blir ju lite nyfiken på hur allt lät och luktade också. Bilden förmedlar mycket, men inte allt.

It's nice to see you back again. :-) I always enjoy seeing photos of daily life in Africa; there are so many colors and so much activity. In this photo, I like the way we see this small street and all of the people on it, while also getting a glimpse of the taller buildings in the distance. The reddish-brown roads look nice when it's dry, but I can imagine how muddy it must be after some rain!
Graal (99088) 2013-08-30 23:46
good reportage about the daily life in Uganda. A bit sadly view, poor and hard life is there. Perhaps peoples are happy. Good POV and perspective of street.
Have a nice day.
UlfE (14641) 2013-09-01 11:01
Jag ser att din bild har fått många fina omdömen. Den är den verkligen värd. Jag gillar din höga utkikspunkt och kontrasterna mellan nytt och gammmalt, traditionellt och modernt. Det finns verkligen mycket att titta på. En fantisk bild helt enkelt. Ha en bra vecka!
jemaflor (87291) 2013-09-01 12:12
Good pov on the street, an interesting daily life scene, colored view, interesting with all these people.
adores (39179) 2013-09-11 17:03
I like a lot this kind of scenes! So much people, colour and things to see here. Good shot, it gives a very good idea of the place!

Belle scène de vie , très animées, beaucoup de détails et de couleurs, excellent POV, très belle présentation de ce pays peu connu...

Enjoy your WE.
Best regards, Erling

Really an interesting daily life scene, and the color of the dirt road makes the image very attractive! A picture full of details to see! Excellent composition!
ChrisJ (101718) 2013-10-12 3:30
It looks to be a very poor and impoverished country. Good use of the rough dirt road as a lead in line which also adds good linear perspective. The people animate the scene and provide scale and context. A stark contrast with the modern modern upscale buildings on the horizon. Excellent color saturation and sharpness. The diffused light works well here. Tfs!

emilbo (22616) 2013-10-28 14:29
Merci de nous faire voir la vie quotidienne d'ailleurs. J'aimerais bien avoir la chance de prendre ce genre de photo. Excellente présentation et la place est bien animée. Bon contrôle de l'éclairage entre ombre et lumière et belles couleurs chaudes.
Toutes mes félicitations!... et merci de ta visite,
Gigidusud (17277) 2013-10-28 15:54
Great capture of the daily life scene on the street with great details. Well done!
Kamilutka (8095) 2013-10-31 8:45
very interesting photo of every day scene in Kampala. There are plenty of details to discover and one can explore them again and again. I love the reality caught in here and very natural colors as well as multilayered plan.
Thanks for sharing
eldancer1 (29990) 2013-11-01 9:48
It's so sad that even in the 21st century there's still a lot of poor people struggling. Good documentation of the daily life of people, sad but beautiful street scene. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
I hope you didn't lose a lot of money in Vegas.
ikeharel (60317) 2014-01-02 20:29
Good morning Boa,
We don't get many photos out of this region onour planet, a nice contribution to the TE site.
An unpaved road and a bit chaotic to western eyes, but well collected pic. down the street, and fine clarity with DOF.
My best regards,
fanni (14381) 2014-01-07 16:50
this is the kind of photos which are always exceptionally interesting for me!
First of all, because you capture the local atmosphere; second, you create an excellent composition in which we see loads of details each of which can tell us a story. I think this is the type of photos which should be accompanied by a detailed long story of the traveller :)
I'd love to see more of such photos of yours here... or maybe on FB!
PS. you are right: Africa has (and shows) almost everything... but not for "just anyone"!
tenretin (2501) 2014-03-01 1:36
I do not know if I'll have ventured into this kind of street? ... In any case I'll be gone next to the reality of this city (of reality).
It is seen and well done.
COSTANTINO (57871) 2014-03-09 15:08
Hello dear friend

jmdias (57505) 2014-06-08 15:48
in fact this isn't the best street in the town I presume. interesting details to see and at same time I guess I never would walk to this area to take a photo and I am happy you took it.
